Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath took one of the serious decisions in his political career. He has banned the use of mobile phones in all colleges and universities in the state.
They will not allow students to take or use mobile phones inside universities and colleges. The ban is also applicable to teachers across all universities and colleges. They took this decision to ensure a ‘better teaching environment’.
An order issued by Dr. Singh, the university registrar said, “Use of a mobile phone is strictly prohibited in classes. The students should not speak over the phone or engage themselves in WhatsApp or social media during class. Those flouting the order will get treated as an act of indiscipline and may face action. It is essential to maintain the sanctity of classroom (sic)”.
Interestingly, the Directorate of Higher Education in Uttar Pradesh has issued orders to prohibit teachers along with the students from entering universities and colleges with a mobile phone.
